Can't understand why the refs would go out of the way to undo the Cavs. It makes the league more money to stretch out the series. This is getting borderline pathetic. No sports is as bad at officiating.

I missed the first half cooking dinner, but saw like two- three fouls on Warriors that were obviously ignored. It seemed like the refs were unfairly not calling those fouls.

Also didn't like Draymond Green and his attitude......Hope Cleveland does better next time.

No after Curry and James were jawing and pushing Cleveland had conceded but the the Warrior raised up to shoot and the Cavalier made a token defensive move towards the shooter. From the referee's angle it looked like he was throwing a forearm to the head and he issued a flagrant 2 and ejection. In the emotional aftermath we had the pushing and shoving. I predict that in the NBA review in the opposite angle ABC's broadcast showed that the flagrant will be removed and a technical foul for the post ejection stuff will be issued

I'm not one to cry about fouls but some of these calls were beyond ludicrous.

How about Green raking James across the eyes, there was a visible blood spot on James' left eye.

Not only that but also the charge that was later changed to a foul for Durant, that was a huge one.

But in the end the Cavs have only themselves to blame. Both teams had 18 fouls called against each other. Hill missed a free throw and JR made a horrible, horrible mental mistake.

But I expect the Cavs to come out fighting again in game 2.

So like I said, basically nothing happened...a typical NBA skirmish.

.
Yes, those were definitely fouls. Can refs really be that biased?

Also worth mentioning Lebron had 51 PTS. That is amazing.

Hill and JR don't happen if it wasn't for the charge overturn. They say don't let the refs decide the game but it seems they were trying to decide the game on their own. Nobody paid their money to see them. Plus, Warriors still would've had a chance to win if Hill made the 2nd free throw. Some people on Twitter are overacting saying "LeBron's gone folks."

I don't see what else the Cavs can do. They gave it their best and the refs made sure they lost. Can't beat the warriors and the refs. I expect we'll see a deflated Cavs team on Sunday get destroyed. I hope I'm wrong.

I could respect (and perhaps root for) GSW if KD was not on it. They didn’t need him and its a travesty that it happened.

It’s so hard to watch this crap unfold.

It doesn’t matter who you blame for the Cavs loss. The fact is that this is disgusting to watch 4 all stars against 1.

Kevin Love is an All-Star, last I checked.

The refs clearly jobbed for Cleveland in Game Four of last year and Game Six in 2016, so I go in expecting them to have to fight against BS calls all game long. Turns out it was the Cavs who endured it tonight.

J.R. Smith is a part of Lebron's talent agency, as is Triston Thompson, and Lebron pressured to Cavs ownership to sign both to max contracts two years ago. I don't feel sorry for J.R.'s penchant for stupidity to come back to bite them one bit.
